Police are yet to arrest the second suspect as fresh tips on the murder has also come to light.
A CCTV footage shows Pule leaving her boyfriend’s complex in Florida in a grey Jeep after reportedly fighting with him.
Malephane said the second suspect set up a false interview in Mondeor, Johannesburg, where Pule was supposed to be kidnapped and killed last month but she did not pitch.
Later, they then set up another plan which was hatched on the day of her murder [4 June].
According to the statement, both suspects arranged an Uber ride for the victim to be picked up [and taken] to a flat in Florida and the two suspects started an argument with Pule and the other party then took out a sharp object with which she was allegedly killed.
Malephane confessed to the police and also pointed out the crime scene when he appeared in the Roodepoort Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
